Bird flu suspected next to Binyamina kindergarten

Bird flu is suspected to have erupted near a Binyamina kindergarten Thursday, after 18 out of 25 hens at the local petting zoo died in the last week. The other hens were culled by workers from the Ministry of Agriculture, who also imposed an animal curfew within a 10-kilometer radius of the kindergarten. Laboratory tests are to be conducted to determine whether the flu, a common animal disease, is of the strain dangerous to humans. It is understood that none of the children came in contact with the infected fowl.
